Office Manager/ LVMT
I have been in the veterinary field for 22 years. I have 7 dogs and 13 cats. In my spare time I like to read, bake and spend time with my husband doing home improvements.
I have been married to my soul mate for 22 years and have two children. I have been a groomer for about 16 years. I lived in Shelbyville most of my life. Around 2000, I opened Dog Dayz inn in Shelbyville. My business consisted of boarding, dog training and grooming. I had a very successful business that I enjoyed. But we moved to Murfreesboro a few years ago, I sold my business, and then went to work at Barfield Animal Clinic. It is so nice to work in a vet office. Many times I find things while I'm grooming that need veterinary care and it is great to have a vet available at all times. I love working with people's furry babies and making them even more adorable with a fresh cut and bath.
I am married with one son and now am a first-time grandma. I have worked in the veterinary field for over 19 years. In the spare time I enjoy spending time with family and crocheting.
I live in Christiana with my husband, Matt; two cats; 10 dogs and multiple foster dogs. I have been active in veterinary medicine for eight years. I enjoy meeting new clients and educating them on proper pet ownership. When I’m not working, I enjoy rescuing dogs and puppies with my nonproft dog rescue, Operation Education Animal Rescue. I believe every life is worth saving and parvo puppies are my favorite!

My name is Daniel Hunzicker. I am 28 years old from Murfreesboro, Tennessee. I currently have two dogs of my own and I also open my home to foster huskies for Operation Education Animal Rescue. I enjoy working with the huskies who need extra attention medically.
Hi, I’m Gerald! I was thrown out of a moving vehicle when I was a tiny kitten. A kind lady picked me up and brought me to Barfield, where they healed my bruised body and broken heart and then I found my forever home as their mascot. I take my job seriously and enjoy meeting all my fans and teaching the dogs that cats are friends, not food! People say I’m puuuurfect!
